Owner description: Canada's majestic castle and Toronto’s premier historic attraction. In 1911, Sir Henry Pellatt engaged noted architect E.J. Lennox to help him realize a lifelong dream,the creation of an Edwardian castle on the top of a hill overlooking Toronto. It took 300 men nearly three years to complete the nearly to 200,000 square foot castle at a cost $3,500,000 (at the time). Situated on 5 acres, Casa Loma was the largest private residence in Canada. Sir Henry Pellatt with his wife Lady Mary enjoyed Casa Loma for less than ten years before financial misfortune forced him to abandon his home. The tour of the castle is self-guided. Visitors can experience the castle at their leisure with the aid of multimedia audio guides.

I love castle hunting, it's one of my favorite hobbies. Casa Loma is the closest castle to my home, so I tend to go here a lot. It's a nice place to think. They have several events throughout the year including Archery tournys, mothers day brunches, horse things, and lots of history. It's a gorgeous castle and Tours are always on. The spring or summer is the best time to go. Go!

Ideal for those who like history and opulence. Learn the history of name who built it, and how his fortunes unravelled. Stunning grounds. Visit the Spadina House across the street while you're there.
